Mo Salah Claims He'll Be Ready For Uruguay Game

Mo Salah Claims He'll Be Ready For Uruguay Game

Mo Salah has surprised everyone by suggesting that he will be fit in time to face Uruguay in Egypt's opening game of the World Cup, despite the shoulder injury picked up in the Champions League final.

Sergio Ramos' shithousery against Mo Salah took the Liverpool forward out of the Champions League final after just half an hour, much to the chagrin on Liverpool fans.

But if the whole incident annoyed fans of the Premier League club, especially as it changed the game in Kyiv, then it was fans in Egypt who were no doubt even more annoyed with the World Cup just round the corner.

As the dust settled on the incident the question was would the former Roma make it to Russia in one piece and able to play. Their opening game against Uruguay seemed a stretch too far.

However to the surprise of many the 25 year old has now claimed in two interviews that he thinks he'll be ready for the first game next Friday.

And in an interview with Marca, via Reuters, he said, "Now I'm feeling better. I'm hopeful of being able to play in our first game, but this will depend on how I feel when the day comes around."

It would be a huge relief should the former Chelsea player be able to make the first game and it would be well deserved too.

Salah scored the goal in qualification that took Egypt to their first World Cup since 1990 and went on to score 43 goals for Liverpool last season.

It's good news for Salah, not so much for the defences of Uruguay, Saudi Arabia and Russia.
